I am happy that Govt. of India has approved three and half yeras Bachelore of Rural Medicine and Surgery (BRMS) which is the new name of the old LMP like degree I had been advocating for introduction since 1980s.
Though I had wished it a base course after which student could opt for any pathy- MBBS, BAMS, DHMS etc. yer it will be a milestone in the delivery of medical services to the far flung areas.
It will need name change soon as by 2050 India will be half urbanised and hence rural urban divide will no longer work; in cities and metros slums will outnumber 'healthy' villages.
